Skunked at Laser Masters Worlds

Published on September 29th, 2017

Split, Croatia (September 29, 2017) – The forecast stronger wind failed to show on the penultimate day of the Laser Masters World Championship. The familiar pattern of waiting on shore until the first visible sign of a south westerly wind was played again, but after going afloat and waiting for three hours, the wind failed to strengthen and stabilize. At 16:00 the fleets were sent back to the harbour.

Racing is still scheduled for tomorrow, but if the current weather pattern continues, the 350 sailors will be lucky to race on the final day. The cut-off time for racing is 15:00, in order for the 175 charter Lasers to be returned before sunset.

Due to no completed racing, the results remain unchanged.

The 2017 Laser Masters World Championships are being held from September 24 to 30.
